We came here for our 5 year anniversary. The cabin was cozy and just what we needed to stay in and cook and enjoy one another’s company! The hot tub was the perfect place in the cooler evenings to watch the sun set! We really enjoyed our time here!
My reviews aren’t great literary work, but I try to give a lot of detail. New owners took over the place very recently, so this may be one of their first reviews. LeAnn has made a great start and communicates well.
We stayed in Cabin #1, Lazy Bear. The coded lockbox for the key is on the wall next to the door and works easily. Directions are under the cover. There is a driveway light outside to make parking and front door access easy at night. No fumbling in the dark to get in. There were three of us, but the cabin is well set up for ten. It was perfectly clean. The wood interior is in great condition with new-looking ceramic tile and good lighting throughout. The living area has comfortable seating for eight. The days and evenings were cool during our stay, but the AC/heat wall-unit kept the temperature comfortable and is easy to set.
The kitchen has enough plates, utensils, pots, and pans. The kitchen table seats six (could squeeze eight) with a table on the covered porch to seat four more. The water has no smell or discoloration. The water has a mineral taste, as one would expect of that geographic area. It is not a bad taste and did not affect cooking. We saw no need for bottled water. The refrigerator is clean and the freezer has six ice-cube trays.
The bedrooms are clean and practical. The primary bedroom has a queen bed with a mattress that is comfortable and on the soft side. The second bedroom has two sets of twin-over-double bunks. One living room sofa is a pull-out. There are plenty of towels, linens, and blankets in good condition. The bathrooms are clean with good water pressure and fixtures that work smoothly.
The hot tub on the deck was in great condition and very clean. The controls are easy to use, the jets and lights all work, and it is built to seat six. There is no view to or from the neighbors from the hot tub, but there is a nice view of the hillside across the hollow and a decent view of the stars.
The location is excellent. It is only about 100 yards off Route 71 along a graded road, and is easy to find. There are a couple cell towers nearby, but T-Mobile is obviously not one of them. The proprietor’s warnings about remote grocery stores and restaurants is accurate. Our trip included seeing a performance at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville which is a pleasant 40 minute drive up Route 71, if you are looking for more than burgers or pizza. This is a very relaxing place to stay. We will be back soon.
Great price for the quality of cabin.we stayed in cabin 1. Peaceful place. Clean hot tub and roomy cabin. Not far from the lake. 2 bed room 2 bath.
Cute and cozy cabin in peaceful location. We had a family wedding at Lake Fort Smith State Park and this was a quick 5 minute drive. Cabin was clean and comfy and hosts were easy to reach and very accommodating. We also got in a great day of hiking at Devils Den State Park.
One tip is to get groceries in Ft Smith or Fayetteville as not much is available in Mountainburg. Plenty of kitchenware for family meals at the cabin.
A quiet and intimate getaway
A quiet nice place to stay. Loved the hot tub. The beds themselves were comfortable and so we’re the couches. We enjoyed our stay.
I had a great time, and the cabin was better than I had hoped. I will return to the same cabins next time I travel past this area.
We stayed at this cabin for the weekend and it was a beautiful cabin, great jacuzzi, a nearby lake. We got to enjoy ourselves out in nature, saw a few deer’s. Overall it was great.
I can not say enough good things about these cabins. It was exactly the peacefulness that we were looking for. We had plans to go hiking at Devils Den but in the end we never left the cabin. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
Great place and the owners are super nice! Definitely will be coming back!
